Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, May 5-7
Hammel @ Cook – I’ll be sold on Hammel if he pitches well here, but playing it safe.
Floyd @ Scherzer – Both are risky but I’ll take my chances.
Holland @ Lowe – Not giving up on Holland yet. Disaster alert for Lowe.
Kuroda @ Paulino – Yankee lineup struggling but ditch on Paulino in his season debut.
Colon @ Hellickson – I have a bad feeling about Colon here so start at your own risk.
Drabek @ Wilson
Marquis @ King Felix – Marquis coming off QS but I’m not a believer, even in this matchup.
Capuano @ Garza – Capuano’s on a roll.
Worley @ Gonzalez
Corbin @ J. Santana
Wolf @ Bumgarner – Wolf disappointing @SD but you can’t possibly bench him here.
Leake @ McDonald – Leake way too erratic thus far.
J. Garcia @ Norris – Bud too inconsistent to pitch here.
Minor @ Moyer – Not liking this matchup at all for fly ball prone Minor.
Buehrle @ Richard – PoD delight!
Sale @ Porcello – Porcello coming off great start but I need to see more from him.
Darvish @ Jimenez – Ubaldo’s a mess. No way do I pitch him vs. TEX.
Hunter @ Buchholz – Hope you didn’t invest much in Clay. He’s been flat-out terrible.
Milone @ Moore – After implosion at Fenway, not trusting Milone vs. the big boys.
Hughes @ Hochevar – Luke is too disaster prone to pitch vs. Yanks.
Hutchison @ Williams – At home, ride Jerome while he’s hot.
Blackburn @ Noesi – Blackburn a decent option in very deep mixed or AL-only.
Cahill @ Dickey – Dickey’s ERA is skewed by one awful start.
Latos @ Morton – Latos so unpredictable but if you can’t trust him for this one, why is he still on your team?
Wainwright @ Happ – Happ very impressive so far but this matchup is just too risky.
Harang @ Volstad – Harang’s medium risk, minimal reward. Ditch.
Beachy @ Nicasio
Nolasco @ Wieland – I’m waiting for one of those 3 IP, 8 ER outings from Ricky, but chances are it won’t happen here.
Marcum @ Cain
Hamels @ Zimmermann
Humber @ Tomlin (Gm 1 of doubleheader)
TBD (CWS) @ Masterson (Gm 2 of doubleheader) – Masterson close to earning back my trust but not yet.
Feliz @ Matusz
Weaver @ Liriano
Doubront @ J. Sanchez – Doubront roughed up by A’s…now that’s a bad sign.
Verlander @ Beavan
Niese @ Halladay
Hanson @ Samardzija – Pitch on Samardzija if you’re feeling lucky.
Zambrano @ Wandy
Arroyo @ Gallardo – Not concerned about Gallardo.
Lynn @ Saunders – I’ll take a shot on Saundo but feel free to bench for this tough matchup.
Chacin @ Volquez – Chacin is DTM as far as I’m concerned.
Zito @ Lilly – Who’s the real Barry Zito? Closer to the one you saw last time out.
